When is potential energy produced?
If I'm not mistaken. The formula for Potential Energy in Physics is
PE = mgy wherein PE = Potential Energy, m = mass, g = acceleration due to gravity, and y = height.
As you will be able to observe potential energy will be produced when the object has a height. Like a person on top of a building, a tennis ball in the air, etc.
What if the object has no height?
- Well, it's simple. When we let y = 0, and multiply it to g and m, PE = 0. Therefore there will be no potential energy produced.
What type of energy is produced by the elastic potential energy of a balloon that is blown and then let go?
Heat and chemical energy. When you charge a battery, energy will be stored as potential energy* and will release heat as a by-product. *I am not sure if potential and kinetic energy just tell what condition an energy is. I will say that the energy stored will be turn into potential which is then turned into chemical when a thing needs to mechanical energy.
Electromagnetic energy is potential energy. All potential energy is the energy due to the position of something in a potential field. "Traditional" potential energy is that given to a mass by raising it. What is really happening is that the mass's position is being changed in the gravitational potential field. The gravitational potential field (gravity) is caused by the presence of any mass in space. Some particles are charged. Like gravity, charge is a fundamental…
Chemical Potential Energy is consumed, which produces heat and light energy. we know that Chemical potential energy is consumed because there is wax at a particular place , which means when the candle is burnt the energy given is heat from the smoke of the fire and light that is produced by the fire.
When a baseball player throws a baseball he transfers kinetic energy from his body to kinetic energy in the ball Where does the baseball player get his kinetic energy from?
Kinetic energy is the energy produced when an object is in motion, When applying a potential energy to an object (REMEMBER THAT POTENTIAL ENERGY IS THE STORED ENERGY FOLLOWED BY AN ACTION) and when the object is released to gain motion it has now a kinetic energy. For example: If a Newton ball from a newton's cradle is taken back and released that potential (BY MOVING IT BACKWARDS) Is transformed into kinetic energy when in…
How do the different forms of potential energy depend on an objects position or chemical chemical composition?
Basically potential energy is always stored in a body because of its position or chemicalcomposition. Firstly, I will elaborate potential energy because of position. The formula of potential energy is P.E = mgh which shows that a body of mass "m", is when at a height of "h" then it has potential energy equivalent to mgh. In this formula "g" is the force of gravity that is 9.8 newton. Now when a body changes its…
Kinetic energy is a form of energy that comes from motion. Therefore any moving object (that has a mass!) has kinetic energy. For kinetic energy to be produced, a force must act upon an object to give it an acceleration, to put it in motion. The simplest case is the conversion of potentiel energy to kinetic energy. When an object is far from its "normal" standing position (in this case the ground), it is said…
If there is no gravity Does potential energy of objects still exit Mechanical energy is produced by force. Gravity is a special force which is unlimited.Potential energy of objects is unlimited.?
If you leave earths gravitational field (sufficiently), objects will have a very negligible gravitational potential energy. You can consider it zero. But what if it were a compressed spring that you brought out into 'deep space'? It would still retain elastic potential energy. A bomb in deep space would still have explosive(?) potential energy. With that said, if you had two or more objects in deep space, they would have gravitational potential energy between the…
Potential energy and gravitational potential energy are different from each other . "Potential energy is the ability of a body to do work." And due_to_its_height.%22">"Gravitational potential energy is the ability of a body to do work due to its height." Gravitational potential energy is a type of potential energy.
The potential energy decreases as the body falls while the kinetic energy increases. P.E.=mass x gravity x height The shorter the height the less potential energy there is K.E.= 1/2 x mass x velocity^2 The velocity increases as the body falls and the bigger the velocity the more Kinetic Energy produced
